Loosely based upon the fear-mongering tale of Chicken Little, The Private Life of Chickens "follows the lives of four, feisty fowls as they struggle with the end of the world. Narrated by a cocky British news anchor, the chickens go to great extremes to win this battle on the sky as fear and hysteria build. With a Julia Childs inspired cooking show, a drunken dance off, a hallucinogenic trip to the underworld, the mania unfolds as the chickens battle with an unknown foe in this hysterical adventure- served sunny-side up!"
The Private Life of Chickens
stars Scott Lyons
